Dialogue(s): symposium Stephanus Sections Covered: 201c-206b, 210a-212a Notes: Session begins with a reading of Socrates’ speech and his dialogue with Diotima on the subject of Love.

And the judgment is that the perceived beautiful is judged to be good, otherwise, no one would want it. Emphasis on Diotima’s...

Dialogue(s): parmenides Chapters: plg Sections: 136a-b,135d Attendees: Pierre, Barbara, Regina, Nancy, Josh, Eldar, JulieH, Yoni, JeffS We keep going with trying to do the 'Zeno dialectic' on the four clauses in 136a,b. Since these clauses could be interpreted in different ways, we explore and consider some of these ways, and how the application of the dialectic would look under each of these interpretations. Also, if this means going over the 9 hypotheses (or some subset for each...

Dialogue(s): book-of-john Chapters: chap01;verse03 Another great informal Saturday morning chat with Pierre and the gang. Synopsis Barbara has been studying the Greek used in the New Testament. Particularly she has been looking at the first few lines of John 1:3. She has been very careful about it, but it sure looks like the text has much Platonic influence and has been incorrectly translated for centuries. She leads us through it at the board. (Diagram 1 of 3) The translation she is using is...
